Name of course leader / leaders:

Prof. dr hab. Kazimierz Klimek



Prerequisites:

Geomorphology, Climatology, Geology



Assumptions and objectives of the course:

Awareness of environmental changes in Middle Europe since the last glacial age.



The form and terms of assessment of the course:

Test


Registration for the course / additional notes:

yes


Content:

Present environment of the Middle Europe used to be drastically changed in last 12 000 years. For the last 6000 years the changes are an effect of agriculture. The changes are recorded in landscape as well as in fluvial and colluvial deposits. Human observation of environmental changes about last 1000 years the changes are available in archival sources.

Diversity of landscape in Poland allows to retrace a sequence of events and human impacts leading to changes in natural environment
